FOXBORO — An exam performed on Tom Brady Wednesday afternoon revealed a sprain of his left knee but the injury is not considered serious, according to a report by WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche, who also serves as the team’s preseason TV announcer.

Brady injured the knee in Wednesday’s joint practice with Tampa Bay when Buccaneers right defensive end Adrian Clayborn bull rushed Nate Solder into the the left leg of Brady. Clayborn said he forced Solder into Brady, causing Solder to trip over the quarterback.

Solder said he’ll have to look more closely at film to see what happened.

On the play, Brady threw a sideline pass to Aaron Dobson. As Brady grabbed his left knee, several teammates and coach Bill Belichick stood over him, waiting for him to get up.

Brady came out limping and then returned for five plays before leaving practice for good, heading to the adjacent practice bubble, where he was examined by medical staff, including trainer Jim Whalen.

The star quarterback immediately grabbed his left knee, the same knee he had reconstructed after tearing the ACL in the 2008 season opener against Bernard Pollard and the Chiefs.

Here are the multiple accounts on Twitter on Wednesday evening concerning Tom Brady’s injury:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Patriots team president Jonathan Kraft told reporters he is hopeful that Brady’s injury is not serious.

“I don’t know definitively what’s going on with Tommy because I haven’t been back in my office yet,” Kraft said. “But I’m under the impression that it’s probably not that serious, but that’s not a definitive answer.”
